Today is going to be a tough day. This morning I am attending the funeral of a family member who passed away suddenly and far too early in his short life over Easter. I've cried, I've questioned why, and I've pulled strength from my reserves, for ultimately these things are sent to try us and to make us stronger. So from today I will try even harder to be happy, to be grateful for everyone and everything, and to see life as a miracle.
